as the romney/ryan ticket today opens up its biggest lead of in this entire election. the republicans leading by a full point now i in the real clear politics average of all polls, that's the first time that's happened since mitt romney secured the nomination. you can see the course of the last year with the blue line for president obama and the red line for mitt romney. and you can bet that this means new pressure for the vice president going into tonight. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. when i prepared for this event today, chris, the daytime show now and the prime time coverage later, the experts told me in the materials i read that the vice presidential debates never really move the election that much, the most it's moved is three points. and i said to myself, three points is a lot in an election like this one. >> three points is a lot when you have a one-point gap, megyn. first, let me say, you are in a beautiful place in america, you are in a wonderful spot, and it's going to be a great fisticuffs tonight, so i'm very

believe this is huge opportunity for romney-ryan, why? >> it is. romney set the stage for the dominant victory over the president in the first presidential debate. that changed the story of the whole campaign. if you have ryan defeating the vice president joe biden it would really create a story of obama-biden on the ropes. and, romney-ryan on the move. bill: the way mike murphy explains it, republican strategist on "meet the press" sunday morning, democrats could be desperate. do you agree with that? >> they're certainly very worried. the degree of concern they had over the president's performance in denver is much deeper than we even thought. they're very, very worried about that. they're looking for joe biden to come out and deliver a lot of zingers and attack lines that barack obama didn't. this is the second chance in the presidential debate. there is not another actual presidential debate until october 16th. bill: listen how paul ryan explains how he sees vice president joe biden. >> he is fast on the cuff. he is a witty guy. he knows who he is and been doing this for 40 years. s

"fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: you know what could be an october surprise is if big bird comes out and said he is for mitt romney. >> gretchen: the people at sesame street said they are not for any cand date. they don't want esident obama's adto continue to run and they are asking for it to come down. >> brian: obama people are thinking about it >> maybe that is because it was panned by both sides of the aisle. >> brian: we listened to it on radio yesterday. it sounds like steven colbear or jon stewart it sounds like a total comedy nothing to do with either side. >> steve: they feature three people from wall street, evil villians. >> brian: madav and ken lay. >> steve: all indicted
they are leveling that attack against gornor romney and paul ryan. uouf gy odhasicroio it's straight out of the saul alinsky playbook. the american people are focused on the facts. what romney and ryan have in eirenheac coac a governor romney in the debate because he has the facts about the economy. alisyn: kirsten, is that how you interpret it? >> it's interesting to juxtapose atpe i libya where there were some untruths told if you want to be subtle about it. when you have the administration being dishonest about the way they handled aer very seous iue finur ar ain pef lying because of things that i think are probably differences of opinion, it's pretty startling. i think it's desperate. this liar liar strategy iser e te fly considering obama really just was pretty much decimated byrum any in that debate. why they continue to bring it up befuddles me. thalen wthesi aou be a post partisan president. he was going to rise above politics. i know we are laughing now. but that was part of the promise. in fact when he was president in 2009 you botecal w yo l wn the president was talking about healthcare'
the second debate. the moderators so far -- the lives that -- romney and paul ryan both lied the entire debate. jim lehrer allowed them to lie. this young lady cut them off. she was correct to say, excuse me, can you be specific? and to be called out like that, a liar -- supporters cannot accept that. if the next moderator's allow the filibuster by the lying mitt romney, or even of the president goes on to a tangent that is totally false, i think that i would expect -- and is not born to happen because i do not think president obama is a lighter, but mitt romney -- vice- president biden did what i would do. i would laugh at their joke. i have been in the debates. and i know that when i am approached with the truth or with an opinion, now an opinion is different from a life. and the vice-president did not call my lawyer. he interrupted him because he wistful of malarkey. host: that was walter from baltimore. charlotte, n.c.. joelle on our line for democrats -- joel on our line for democrats. host: keep it to the moderator. caller: they are only upset of it doesn't go their way. host: so

for years. i find it ironic now they are leveling that attack against governor romney and paul ryan. this is classic projections. accusing your oh poanltd of what you yourself have guilty of. it's straight out of the saul alinsky playbook. the american people are focused on the facts. what romney and ryan have in their arsenal are the facts. that's why president obama could not come back again governor romney in the debate because he has the facts about the economy. alisyn: kirsten, is that how you interpret it? >> it's interesting to juxtapose this conversation against what's going on in this hearing with what happened in libya where there were some untruths told if you want to be subtle about it. when you have the administration being dishonest about the way they handled a very, very serious issue facing our country, to turn around and start accusing people of lying because of things that i think are probably differences of opinion, it's pretty startling. i think it's desperate. this liar liar strategy is very desperate and i don't know why they want to keep talking about the deba
president biden is in wilmington, delaware, his hometown, preparing. romney's running mate paul ryan is headed to danville, kentucky, where the debate will take place. of course, you can watch the vice presidential debate live tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. eastern on cnn and on cnn.com. it will be interesting, to say the least. >> absolutely, it will be. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," affirmative action, the supreme court is taking up that racially charged issue. up next, we're going to talk to a university president who was the last to look into this issue in front of the supreme court. columbia university professor lee bollinger. president, for give me. i just demoted him. >>> and shocking and disturbing video. suv slams into a man. look at that. oh, my goodness. crossing the street. sends him ten feet in the air. >>> plus, a look at business. christine? >> yeah, if you drive a toyota, enormous, enormous global recall under way. what you need to know if you're driving a toyota next. you're watching "starting point." when you have diabetes... your doctor will say ge
in the shows. we will talk to experts on that debate performance. >> meanwhile mitt romney and paul ryan both in the all important swing state of ohio today. but president obama off the trail. he is hunkering down in virginia preparing for round 26 the debates. hoping to avoid another bad performance against romney. peter doocy live in d.c. with more. looking ahead to this town hall on tuesday. should be fun. >> it should be fun. and, dave, president obama admitted this week he had a bad night at the first debate and the general consensus was that he lost round one. but round 2 is on tuesday night and the president is taking steps to make sure he improves later on this afternoon. is he going to fly on down to williamsburg, virginia, about 150 miles away from the white house to get ready for that town hall style debate. is he going to be hidden from the public eye. he doesn't have any scheduled rallies or events today.

they can elect you. >> steve: is calling mitt romney and ryan a good strategy. here to weigh in is washington insider amelia and democrat pollster marjorie. good morning to both of you. >> margey. it does sound like according to the new york times, 10 minutes before the end of the debate they were on a conference call talking about he stunk up the place. we'll have to go full steam ahead on a new attack and that is going to be romney is a liar. >> any time you hear mitt romney express different position than the day before it is for voters to know. we would be talking about mitt romney's loose interpretation of the facts regardless of what the people thought of the pet's performance. his own campaign walked back what romney said about covering people with preexisting conditions in the healthcare plan. >> marjorie wasn't the president lying when he repeatedly said mitt romney would raise taxes five trillion dollars. it will not be near five trillion wasn't that a lie. >> no it is not a lie because romney will not talk about the loop holes. he refuses to walk through the math.
and get congressman ryan to commit to positions that may be antithetical opposite to what mitt romney is saying? is he going to try to paint romney with what ryan says at this debate, on medicare, medicaid and on issues like at that? >> absolutely. what he's-- what i'm sure he'll say as well. now romney is talking a moderate game and let's look what you proposed two years ago or four years ago, for instance, ryan's plan, he also took 716 billion dollars out of medicare, and one of the main attack points na romney is making against obama and romney would put that 716 billion dollars back. but, you can be sure that biden is going to say, well in your own budget you were taking the 716 out. so he's going to try to paint, you're exactly right, peter, paint romney with some of ryan's positions not to say they were extreme, but more conservative and more hide line. >> chris, tell us what's coming up on your show today. >> we will have our own debate, alisyn. we are going to have two interesting figures, martin o'mally the governor of maryland and a lot of people think win or lose for obama,
and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. mitt romney suggested this debate might just be ryan's first, but my next guest knows better, because she debated ryan in 1998 and she says ryan is a master of ambush politics. her words. also another word, she says he's slick. we'll talk to lydia spotswood, next. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ] if you're eligible for medicare, you may know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. call now and find out about an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, it helps pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. and could save you thousands in out-of-pocket costs. to me, relationships matter. i've been with my doctor for 12 years. now i know i'll be able to stick with him.

, mitt romney endorsed and put ryan on the ticket, would have tremendously slashing effect in government spending and social programs. it cuts taxes further. beyond the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. i think there's still a lot of back and forth flip-flopping whatever you want to call it strategic ambiguity what mitt romney is saying. host: let's go to stamford, connecticut,bob you're up next. caller: good morning. i'm an informed voter and i spent 30 plus years in the consulting industry and i don't know how to create jobs and people would have you believe is possible. there's a number of factors that led to the current condition and i don't hear anybody talking about what's going to be done to alleviate those factors. going to give you a couple examples. one is the banks. the availability of money. two, is the confidence in wall street. so many got burned, very few people private investors, want to take chance on investing money. three oil, the war in iraq, restricted the flow out of one of the major producers when congress petitioned for that oil around the world which was increasing

question though for paul ryan is he going to deny some of the things in his budget, that governor romney has -- is he going to be more specific than governor romney wrz in terms of how they're actually going to pay for the tax cuts. and the vice president, he doesn't need advise from me, but he just needs to be himself. he is a son of the middle class, who understands the middle class issues extremely well. >> why do you think he has developed this reputation for, shall we say misspeaking. this is five years ago, before he was vice president, quoting from an editorial that called him a gaff machine. >> vice president biden is just a very real guy, he loves people and he tells it like it is, and sometimes when you tell it like it is and you're not really carefully scripted, all of us say things. i can tell you though, that the real joe biden is extraordinarily grounded in what matters to real people. this is a guy who grew up, a son of a car salesman, you know, grew up in a near wilmington, delaware. a very hard worker, the people of delaware love him, they have seen him good and bad thro

-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. >> i think there will be paul ryan's fourth debate since he's been in congress, so definitely new to that game, whereas joe bietden has been around 40-plus years in the senate. >> a long time. pressure on both, that's for sure. >> it will be high drama. >>> one month after the deadly attack on the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans in benghazi we were learning more about security fears leading up to the assault. state department documents show the u.s. embassy in libya asked for a four-month extension for a 16-member security team and the team's commander tells abc news, that ambassador chris stevens wanted the security force to stay even longer, past august. but no request was actually received. in fact, a request for an extension past august, it was, but no never made even though it had been confirmed and it was granted. but they had never actually put that request through. but tragic, if indeed tha
